Also worth remembering that if he died in a pit accident, there would probably have been a coroners inquest & the burial would not have taken place until the inquest was heard.


Flip Report 20 Sep 2013 14:19

Published 2/11/1860

Yesterday (Thursday), an inquest was held upon the body of William Kenyon, miner, who was so severely injured at Jane Pit that he died. It appeared that on Wednesday afternoon deceased and a comrade were hagging coals, when something blunted the latter's pick anfd caused him to turn aside, during which momentary interval a fall from the roof crushed deceased. His comrade, who escaped as it were by a miracle, hastened to extricate him and carried him a considerable distance, but his injuries were fatal and he died in a few hours. The jury adjouned for a week, in order to allow the presence of the Inspector. Deceased has left a widow and four young helpless children

So only adjourned for a week to allow the inspector to attend. It wouldn't have held up burial back then, (or even now unless there were suspicious circumstances) as an interim death cert would be issued.
